Aussie Rules. It’s not just a weird way to play Gaelic Football; it’s an actual fact when it comes to great places to live!
In the league of best cities in the world to live in, Australia rules the roost. In fact, four of the top ten world’s best cities to put down roots in are in Australia, with Melbourne at No. 1.
But don’t take our word for it, the clever people at the Economist figured that one out. Fair dinkum.
5 reasons to visit Australia
Lots of Irish people are already enjoying the glories of Oz. However, Australia isn’t just great to live in; it’s an even better place to visit. As if the accent alone wasn’t a good enough reason to go, here are some more reasons why you should take a trip down under:
1. Our winter is their summer
Ever wanted to celebrate Christmas with a barbeque on the beach? Well, in Australia you can. As they are in the southern hemisphere, Australians enjoy their summer during our winter months. Have you ever been caught in the rain in the middle of winter and wished you could be swept away to a magical land where the sun was shining? Australia is the answer.
2. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world
Australia’s Gold Coast is famous worldwide, but there are many more beaches to admire wherever you go. Whether you want to try your hand at surfing or are just looking to spend the day soaking up some sun, there’s no shortage of beautiful beaches in Oz. And the fun on the beaches doesn’t stop once the sun goes down. Beach parties sometimes go on until the early hours of the morning for the more adventurous.
3. There is no shortage of beautiful sights
Australia is no one-trick pony, there is natural beauty everywhere. Those who want to stay in the water can go see the Great Barrier Reef, while inland there are such wondrous sights as Uluru. Even in the cities you can admire the beauty of the Sydney Opera House or the tremendous Eureka Tower in Melbourne. An Australian road trip is a great way to experience a variety of sights in one go.
4. The rich cultural heritage
It is believed that the indigenous people of Australia have the oldest living culture in the world. According to some reports, they have been there for over 60,000 years. If you go, you’ll have a chance to interact with the Australian Aboriginal culture, an experience like no other.
5. It’s an adventurer’s dream
It is no secret that outside of the cities, Australia can be a wild place. With more kangaroos than people, it is fair to say that there is an abundance of unique wildlife for any travelling adventurer to enjoy. But don’t worry; you don’t have to go at it alone. There are plenty of ways to experience the Australian Outback; from group adventures to romantic getaways and everything in between.
